It's a solenoid valve for the wastegate. I'll use it. But you need a thin open end wrench to remove it.

Trying to use it with MS? Mr. Bill tried it and failed. Good luck, it's a cool thing to have if you can get it working.

Edit:// See you're using VEMS

Crank from a 550cc Super Motard Aprilia V-twin. Spectacular oil dump on the engine dyno does that.

TB adapter. 960 TB to ME7 intake.

But then I had to make extra sure the air molecules wouldn't bunch up and leak.
Phew, close one.

Fastener/wrenching clearance on the intake side doesn't look great...

I'd just weld it on...

It fits. Already checked on that one
You learn that really quick when you are the one putting the stuff together.

If your concerned about it fitting your not a true engineer! You should see some of the designs we get handed. All you can do is laugh.


Think you can rotate the TB just enough to make the adapter shorter? just enough so you can get the bolts out of alignment.

The throttle cam runs into the intake if its placed any closer.
